Slater Young had a question and answer session with wife Kryz Uy in his latest YouTube vlog about their house which is popularly known as the Skypod.
In the said vlog, Slater explained to Kryz on why he needs to fix a lot of things in their house despite it being new.
“The reason why Kryz is here because ang dami niyang reklamo when it comes to our home. Ang dami niyang mga tanong sa akin like, ‘Love, why ang dami nating mga problema sa bahay.? Bakit ang dami mong inaayos?'” Slater said in the introduction of his video.
“So I would say these are things that new homeowners, hindi nila in-expect. In this video I give Kryz free reign to ask me a lot of questions, especially from a homeowner's point of view,” he added.
Kryz then elaborated that since Slater spent a lot of time on the planning stage of the house, she assumed that when they moved in, there would be no renovations or repairs that needed to be done.
“So, love, when we first moved into this house you spent so long on the planning stage because you told me it is better to spend so much time in the planning stage kaysa na-build na ‘yung bahay, all of the further renovations will take longer. So I expected that when we finally moved into our house tapos we live here and that’s it. But I was surprised to see that ang daming small things that you needed to fix here and there especially in the pandemic when we were at home all the time,” Kryz said.
Slater then explained that a house always needs maintenance. He first pointed out the problem that they encountered about their bathroom which had an odor that they needed to fix.
“The house needs certain maintenance. That's why palagi nilang sinasabi na ang bahay na hindi tinitirhan mas nasisira. Like for example ‘yung mabaho ang CR it is because ‘yung drains mo are very, very dry and kailangan mo siyang gamitin from time to time. If there are people using it, nagse-seal ‘yung water sa amoy ng CR. Pansin mo ngayon mas hindi na sya problem nagyon because we are using all the CRs,” he shared.
Slater also pointed out the squeaky doors that they needed to repair.
“With the doors naman, we have squeaky doors from time to time. Mahirap siya isara and it happens because of mother nature. Woods expands and contracts. The materials nagstre-stretch and nagco-contract depending on the temperature. humidity, etc.,” he said.
Slater then addressed Kryz’s general complaint about their house.
He said, “I think the broader complaint that you would have is bakit ang daming things to take care of when our house is brand new? And that is because a house really needs taking care of. Walang bahay na no maintenance,” he stated.
Slater then compared Kryz’s old family home and their new house, the Skypod.
“Because sa hold house niyo, this is a generalization, most of the people kapag may kaunting sira—loose knob, loose faucet or medyo squeaky doors—they don't think about it. Parang ah that's just part of it. Hindi nila inaayos agad. Minsan I get that comment na parang ang dami niyong inaayos sa bahay ninyo. It’s just because you're just maintaining it. You're not doing any major repairs because it is just small repairs here and there,” Slater said.
